This petition addresses the despicable, racists and disgusting remarks made by US Rep. Andre Carson while speaking at a Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami, Florida when Carson said: ?Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me -- hanging on a tree."

This is clearly a violation of the Federal Hate Speech Laws enacted to protect our citizens from such inflammatory language who?s only purpose it to incite and inflame one race against another.

In law, hate speech is any speech, gesture or conduct, writing, or display which is forbidden because it may incite violence or prejudicial action against or by a protected individual or group, or because it disparages or intimidates a protected individual or group.

His actions are clearly in violation of existing laws and the Code of Ethics of Congress that states:

?There is hereby established by and for the House of Representatives the following code of conduct, to be known as the "Code of Official Conduct" in which Article 1. States; 1. A Member, officer, or employee of the House of Representatives shall conduct himself at all times in a manner which shall reflect creditably on the House of Representatives.?

We have rules and laws that are to be followed by all American Citizens and that INCLUDES MEMBERS OF CONGRESS!

Rep. Andre Carson should be forced to resign and lose ALL BENEFITS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. An apology would mean nothing at this point as it would clearly be insincere and would only be in his self-serving interests.

Americans are sick and tired of this racial pandering in this country especially in CONGRESS that allows this kind of racial hatred to be spread throughout this great nation.

Congressman Andre Carson should be forced to resign IMMEDIATELY without any benifits or retirement as he has disgraced his office and the House or Representatives of the United States of America!
